And checking out! I’ve got nothing to share tonight… what a bummer! Oh wait, surely I could dig through my hard drive and find something. Nope! Nada! Nothing!

You have anything? :)

This is Prissy Lynn Boykin. Now before you get all giggly and thinking how silly it is to have dogs with people names, you must understand this is not a dog. This is a prissy princess and she knows it!

Pris

Pris was dumped in our little town and left to fend for herself. Very shy and not one bit friendly, she survived for over a month on the porch of the weekend neighbors’ home a couple of doors up from us. The hubby finally got her to trust him after feeding another dog of ours treats while she watched. It wasn’t long until she decided this looked like home to her too.

She’s not a very nice dog to strangers for she does what herding dogs do best. She circles and barks and scares the daylight out of those that dare cross the boundaries of our property.

She is a nice dog to those she loves and we’re very fortunate to be those people. She’s our protector and a beautiful addition to my photo gallery. :)

What do fish and fire have in common?

Finally! A heifer calf out of the Charolais bull. Her mom is a crossbred cow. Crossbred with what you may ask… well, I’m not sure although I would feel safe in saying a little Brangus blood might course through her veins. She was purchased from the neighbor who has a mixture of this and that. But on to the subject of this post… this baby really does have big ears, but she is rather cute. She might have a forever home according to how she looks after gaining 400 or so pounds. Go see if you agree!

Idol… yes, again!

Loved it… very moving… although disturbing when I thought Jordin was history! That was not fair to upset her like that! She may go next week, but I hope not! I’m liking this final six, but will be thrilled if she wins.

It’s Storming…

we’ve had nearly 3 inches of rain, a tornado touched down 8 miles north and a bit west of us earlier and the last we heard had demolished one trailer home and did major damage to another. I don’t think anyone was severely injured.

The rain is awesome, the storms? Not so much! I better get off of here, the thunder is rolling in the distance again.

Late last night I fired up Paint Shop Pro and had a go at this past week’s challenge. I hope the image resembles the back of a lady’s head. The barrette or hair ornament was created with the challenge object.

From this:

The husband was at it again today! This time it was a terrapin and thank goodness we don’t have to feed it! We’re both notorious for rescuing needy critters. This one was a city dude and was traveling northbound on a busy street when he was rescued. We released him far away from the hustle and bustle and sincerely hope he won’t hold it against us for turning him into a country bumpkin. ;)

Crazy, busy day here… wormed cattle, moved cattle, chased cattle (don’t ask!), checked fences and fixed fences. It’s a wonderful life! :)
